This is a great book! Whether you have to cope with a chronic illness or just the chronic condition of being human, this book has something to offer. It is written in a non preachy way by a woman who knows what she is talking about. This is the first book of it's type that I have found helpful even when I am too unwell to get out of bed. It can be read in little parts or gobbled up whole. I keep it next to my bed for a refresher/reminder when my illness is weighing heavy and I forget "How to BE sick." I highly recommend it to everyone and I am buying extra copies for friends.

Toni Bernhard Hi Heather. I'm so glad you liked my book. I just wanted you to know that I, too, keep it by my bed as a kind of reference book even though I wrote it! Toni
